Frances? Seriously.. Get some friends.
Kids and animals are always a fun combination. There¡¯s not really much you can do with a rabbit though, or so I thought, because Frances¡¯ rabbit is so well trained, he can do anything! Well, ok, he can climb stairs and pick up crayons with his teeth.. But still! Anyways not much happens in this short. It¡¯s raining so Frances and Hopper can¡¯t play outside! They decide to draw a picture. It¡¯s a nice picture. The rain ends. They go back outside, The End. Whoopeedoo.
Props for the well trained bunny though.

Wow! What a great rabbit!
This is a sweet and gentle little film about young Frances, who is bored on a rainy day, and her fantastic trained rabbit Hopper who helps her to draw a picture. I got a big kick out of watching Hopper select specific crayon colors for Frances to use. Who could possibly be bored, rain or shine, with a professional rabbit like Hopper around? One note- I didn't realize that playing jacks is a strictly outdoors activity.
